The rain of the fruits seemed like an unreal legend . Things like this should only happen in dreams . Of course, the dreamers would jolt into consciousness from being overly excited .
Nevertheless, this was reality, not an illusion .
“Pinch me real quick . ” A student asked his friend nearby .
The painful sensation made him realize that he was indeed awake .
The same shock struck everyone with disbelief . How could he get so many fruits at the same time? Not even a True Emperor could replicate this feat .
Zhou Qiushi and the others could feel the tangible fruit in their palm, letting them know that this was actually happening .
Zhang Tingyu stood there with his mouth open wide enough to fit a duck egg . His jaw nearly dropped to the ground .
“This… this can’t be…” He murmured, unable to accept the irrefutable reality .
“Unfortunately, it is . ” Li Qiye smiled and said while taking a bite out of a White Hair Fruit .
He immediately spat it out and threw down the rest too . It disappeared back into the earth .
“So hard to eat, only meant for street vendors . ” Li Qiye smiled, treating the big fruit as if it was disgusting .
This outrageous and wasteful act of his made some students want to strangle him to death . They stared at the disappearing fruit and felt deep pain . Some of them couldn’t get a single one at all .
A fifth-ranked fruit, and the finest type among them… Not to mention ordinary students, even the ones from the four great academies considered them precious . Only very few in Immortal Lineage could afford to treat it like a regular fruit and consume it for mere pleasure . Normally, a White Hair Fruit would be viewed as an immortal fruit . People would take their time relishing just one .
“You should have given it to me! I don’t mind if you’ve taken the first bite!” One student yelled in agony and felt indignation .
Only Du Wenrei remained calm, thinking that this was to be expected .
“You have lost . ” Li Qiye turned his sight towards Zhang Dingyu .
“No, impossible!” Dingyu turned pale while staggering backward .
He thought that five fruits would have been enough for sure but he ended up losing in such a terrifying manner . The sudden reversal caught him off guard .
“Nothing’s impossible about it . It’s a loss so start crawling around the valley while barking . ” Li Qiye said flatly .
“ . . . ” Dingyu continued to retreat . Everyone could see his face turning red .
To do so in public was unacceptable . There was no way he could remain a “human” after suffering such humiliation .
In the beginning, he made this arrangement since he was certain of victory . He had imagined the dozens of students from Repentance crawling and barking . It would have been quite a scene - enough to satisfy his ego and make him feel great .
Alas, the loser ended up being him .
He didn’t know what to do right now . He naturally wouldn’t start crawling . What a joke . How could a student from Dawn do something like that?
“This is the consequence of betting and losing . Start crawling, everyone is waiting to hear you bark . ” Li Qiye added .
“You!” The red-faced youth trembled with rage . He eventually shouted: “You have to be cheating, there’s something wrong with this!”
“Cheating? As if such a thing is possible . ” Li Qiye smiled: “If you know of a way to do so, let me know, I’m listening . ”
The crowd exchanged glances . Li Qiye was able to knock dozens of fruit down with a flick of the finger .
This was indeed unbelievable but they saw it with their own eyes . Li Qiye had no way of cheating the system . Plus, plenty of experts and masters were present . They should be able to tell if he did something in secret .
“There’s no magic spell that can do so . The only thing we can really attribute it to is luck . ” A student from a big academy stated .
After all, plenty of people have tried numerous ways to get these fruits down outside of knocking . Even progenitorial merit laws were useless .
This land has been gestated by Desolate Saint’s power of light . No one else had more power than him in the system .
“Don’t embarrass yourself any further by going back on your words . ” Li Qiye looked at the youth .
All eyes were on Dingyu now . Li Qiye’s victory was as clear as day . There was no way for Dingyu to renege on the bet .
“You people from Repentance are willing to do anything to win! Hmph, your ancestors are treacherous criminals and sinners who have done heinous deeds . I’m sure you scums have prepared something sinister beforehand in order to trick everyone here…”
Some of the gazes had disdain in them now . Though certain students here really did look down on Repentance, Dingyu’s dishonest and shameless act wasn’t doing him any favor .
“Boom!” He couldn’t finish before getting stomped down to the ground .
“You dare to hit me?!” Dingyu bellowed .
The assailant was actually Du Wenrui, not Li Qiye .
“Crack!” Wenrui raised his foot and stomped down on the youth’s back .
“Ahh!” Dingyu screamed in agony due to bones being broken .
“Young one, a senior like myself doesn’t interfere with the business of the young generation . You all can do whatever you want . However, playing dirty and falsely accusing Repentance Institution? That’s not acceptable so I, the dean of Repentance, have no choice but to step in for my students . ” Wenrui said flatly .
Wenrui didn’t seem powerful so few students outside respected him . Nonetheless, he was still a dean recognized by all four great academies . Thus, his status and position were the real deal .
Now, Dingyu failed to perform his end of the bargain so it was fine for a dean to step in . This couldn’t be considered a senior bullying a junior . None in the crowd had a problem with this .
“You, you dare to hit me?! I’m a student at Dawn! Our academy won’t let this go!” Dingyu shouted again .
